Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is proud to share Dallas-based counsel Jacque Kruppa’s recent recognition among the 2021 Most Influential Women in Mid-Market M&A by Mergers & Acquisitions Magazine. This national list highlights 69 female “dealmakers making a difference” in their professional accomplishments, team leadership and inclusion efforts.

Kruppa received an Honorable Mention for her representation of community banks and advocacy for women in the community banking industry. She has represented banks and holding companies in over 70 M&A transactions, including the application and approval to open the first de novo bank in Houston since 2008 with the largest capital raise in history for a Texas de novo bank.

Throughout the last year, Kruppa has been personally involved with approximately five percent of all bank M&A deals announced in 2020 and has led initiatives in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to assist clients in understanding and implementing the Paycheck Protection Program and to rework the DOJ horizontal merger guidelines, both of which greatly impacted community banks across the country.

Additionally, Kruppa is founder and president of the nonprofit, Women in Community Banking, an organization formed to provide educational, networking, and mentoring opportunities for women in the community banking industry.
